Some arrogant freak had the nerve to walk into my yard and steal my Obama sign. I wish I could say it doesn’t bother me, I can get them for free all day long. As long as it bothers me, the ignot who stole it has met their goal. To piss me off.
My first reaction besides anger was to wonder who would do such a thing. Is it a bunch of teenage pranksters? That’s what Blane thinks. I’ve probably put way too much thought into what type of person it could be. A racist? A religious zealot?
I’ve also probably put too much thought into what they might think about us. Do they think we support an islamic terrorist who is going to convert America into a communist country?
Too much, I say, because I really need to think more about getting even with the bastard. They don’t won’t see/hear my preference for president? I have a two story house, I could put an Obama banner across the upper half with honking lights and another sign that says, “steal this, bi-otch.”
My sign isn’t the only one missing. All the Obama signs in this neighborhood are gone, gone, gone. The McCain signs are still there.
Okay, I’m going move on, get another sign. But how do I keep that one from getting stolen?
I could spray it down with some mace or pepper, but what if some little kid or a dog happens to wander into the yard and touch it? I guess rigging it with a dose of electricity is not a good idea either (yes, I’d have a hidden camera if I did that).
I could chain it to the tree.
Wrap razor wire around it.
Rig it up with a car alarm that squeals, “You’re assaulting me!” if someone just looked at it funny.
I shouldn’t have to do this, it is my own property we’re talking about here. What do I have to do to practice free speech in my own yard?
